Lane Shifts and Closures Through December on I-95 Near Triangle
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin shifting all lanes to the left on a half-mile stretch of I-95 South in Prince William County, from just south of the truck scales to Exit 152 (Route 234).
This lane shift will be in place for about two and a half months while VDOT installs a drainage system to drain groundwater seeping from springs underneath the pavement. If not repaired immediately, the water seepage will be a safety issue for the traveling public during the upcoming cold weather.
Throughout this work, drivers should expect single lane closures Monday through Thursday from about 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., and Friday until 11 a.m., as well as multiple lane closures during weekday overnight hours from 9:30 p.m. until about 6 a.m. on this stretch of I-95 South.
Trucks exiting from the truck scales are advised to expect a shorter merge area.
All work is weather dependent.
VDOT anticipates completing this emergency repair before the end 2015.
